Weekly Sustainability Tip:
Reuse Paper to Create Notepads
Most of us have a lot of paper sitting around the house or the office that only has text printed on one side. One option is to throw it into the recycling bin, but that paper still has one entire blank side begging to be used.
So Instead of recycling this paper, go one step further up the waste management hierarchy and reuse it. With a pair of scissors and a stapler you can create a notepad of scratch paper for all your to-do lists. Then once both sides of the paper have been used, pitch it into the recycling bin.
By reusing and recycling paper we can save trees, leaving more to clean the air and for us to hug.
